NYPD Whistleblower Hospitalized Against Will Settles for $600,000

Settled a $600,000 lawsuit Tuesday with one of its own officers after they forced him into a psychiatric ward for several days against his will for turning whistle-blower on them.

NYPD officer Adrian Schoolcraft, who has been on unpaid suspension since 2008, will receive back pay, benefits and punitive damages.

Schoolcraft was suspended after he released recordings of NYPD sergeants continually directing its’ officers to stop people on the street, even without merit or probable cause that the individuals stopped had committed a crime.

The NYPD’s practices are a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects American citizens against illegal unwarranted search and seizure.

In addition to placing him on suspension, the NYPD arrested Schoolcraft from his residence and forcefully took him to a psychiatric ward at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center where he was left for days.

The arrest and mental hospitalization was ordered by Schoolcraft’s commanding officer, Steven Mauriello.

The suit alleged that the NYPD made a coordinated and concentrated effort to silence Schoolcraft after he released recordings of the Constitutional injustice. The settlement does not cover the suit against Jamaica Hospital Medical Center and doctors who treated Schoolcraft against his will.

NYPD street stops have quintupled during the “stop and frisk” era with complaints indicating police have put Black and Latino neighborhoods under siege.

In fact, Schoolcraft was stationed at the 81st Precinct, which covers a crowded multiracial population of low-income areas, filled with gentrification-infested housing projects.

A city spokesman released the following statement:

“We are pleased that we were able to reach a just and fair resolution of this dispute, the settlement should not be construed as an admission that the city or any city employee engaged in wrongdoing. We believe this settlement is in the best interests of the city.

Earlier this year, PINAC reported on Baltimore cop Joseph Crystal; Officer Crystal sued the Baltimore Police Department for $2.5 million for harassment and police misconduct.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
